Dinner

Ready, Set, Go!

Sorry for the late-ish post, guys! Days like this are always crazy because I have to drive back from Tampa to Orlando in time to get my grocery shopping, wash and cleaning done…I was really hoping I was going to have an extra half an hour to hit the gym but that didn’t happen. Every second was filled!  First of all, the car place took 2 1/2 hours!!!!! Don’t you hate that?! I was planning on 30 minutes…it was alright though because I got some work done and got to test drive a new black beetle (the car I’m dying to get when I finally get around to trading my old Accord in).

When I finally got back from the dealership, I was surprised to find Ryan still at home. He had planned on working from home this morning to surprise me when I got back—we thought it would only be 45 minutes! Turned out he had been waiting for me for two hours and when I got there we only had 5 minutes before he had to hurry out the door for a lunch meeting. It’s the thought that counts though and it was fun to see each other one last time til Saturday.  🙁

I ate leftover pizza for lunch and it was amazing! I LOVE their pizza—their crust especially! So good! This lunch really filled me up and since I had such an early dinner I didn’t need a snack this afternoon.

Speaking of dinner…when I saw this frozen Indian meal in Publix it was calling my name. I’ve never tried frozen Indian food but this blew me away. It was sooooo delicious!! I knew I would need some more protein to my meal to fill me up though because these dumplings only had two grams for the entire meal. So, I made an easy version of dal—or just plain spiced red lentils for that matter. I simmered 1/4 cup lentils in 1/2 cup water for about fifteen minutes with a pinch of cayenne pepper, salt, tumeric, curry powder and garam masala. They went perfectly with the dumplings and now I am quite full and content! I also had a simple spinach salad with woodstock dressing.

I’m off to school very early to work out some loan stuff then go to the library and work more on my project. I’m bringing a Nana’s pb cookie “bite” with me for a snack later on though!

    Hey Jenna,

    Is this Indian meal by the Amy’s stuff in Publix? I don’t think I’ve seen it and I’d really like to try it. Also, did you mention which pizza place this is in TPA? I am curious.

    Thanks!

    Hey Jenna, what is the woodstock dressing like? Can you compare it to any other dressings or describe it? I went and got the goddess dressing because everyone was so gaga over it and hated it, it tasted like bacon or something, i dont’ want to buy another bottle that i wont use!

    Hi guys, sorry for the random question but seems like a good place for it…
    My Dr. prescribed Loestrin24 to restore my period after it disappeared post some weight loss, although I maintain a healthy weight (125, 5’5). Very frustrating! I am nervous about the laundry list of side effects and horror stories (depression, anxiety, heart attack(!)….) 🙁 Does anyone here have experience with this medication and can shed some light? Thanks.

    The Indian frozen meals at Whole Foods always look so intriguing! It’s good to know that this brand is worth trying — thanks for the review! And poo on the car place for messing up Ryan’s plans to spend time with you.

    Those Indian meals are SO GOOD. I’m totally addicted to them, and I love the tandoori chicken one the most!

    jessie, I havent tried Goddess but I’d highly highly recommend Amy’s gingerly dressing- its amazing. Taste like asian- close to Newman’s sesame ginger but better!! try it!
    does anyone have a recommendation for natural, low fat honey mustart dressing? havent found one I like!

    Jessie,

    Woodstock dressing has tahini and tomato in it…it’s AMAZING. my favorite of all time. I can’t compare it to anything else I’ve ever had…but its really really good. Def. no “bacon” taste at all! Try it..I haven’t met anyone that doesn’t like it 🙂

    NJ,

    this isn’t amy’s brand…its another all natural frozen ethnic food brand. I really liked this and also bought the chickpea masala. It has a pretty small list of ingredients, all of which I can pronounce and it tasted amazing! The pizza place is called Sally O’Neals and it’s on South Howard Ave. My favorite 🙂
